Commonly prescribed for: Feline Herpes Virus and FHV (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis)
Therapeutic Class: Antiviral
Famciclovir is an antiviral drug used in veterinary medicine predominantly to treat cats suffering from feline herpes virus and FHV (feline viral rhinotracheitis). Famciclovir itself is not active in either humans or cats; it is metabolized to an active form, penciclovir. Although there is still some debate about how cats absorb and use this drug, there have been some very persuasive studies that show that famciclovir can be useful to treat cats with clinical disease due to FHV-1.
